Three or More on Tuesday...

Thanks goes out to "Tam" at "The Gypsy's Corner" for hosting Three & More Tuesday!
Please drop by her place to visit more shares today...
Today I decided to share "3" Teacups.

Two are from my collection and one is in an Antique store that I recently visited. Since my collection is "so" large, (100+) I'm very selective about purchasing one myself for my collection...so it has to be very different from those I already have, or one that I'm specifically looking for.

1. This first cup I purchased on my first trip to "Classy Flea" in Marietta, GA. I adore it...since I'm traveling right now, I don't have the details on the bottom of the cup with me, but I do remember it is a cup from the Royal Albert 2003 collection.
2. The second cup is one I seen on my travels this week...It is really stunning.
I loved the aqua color with the posies in the bottom.
3. The third cup is one that I also found at "The Classy Flea", in Marietta, GA. A while back I had posted that I was hoping to find another teacup in the "Indian Tree" pattern...to let me know. Well, I found it here for only $6. The luncheon plate on the bottom was found at a next door neighbors yard sale for only $2 a few years back and they match. ;)
Well...That's my three or more for today!
Now can I say a BIG YEA???

YEA...I just learned this morning that I won
Tam's 1st Birthday Giveaway from "The Gypsy's Corner".
I am "SO EXCITED"! ;)
Thanks Tam!

Till I see you tomorrow with Outdoor & Rose Wednesday!

They are all just so lovely. Each one so different. I love roses and flowers of all kinds. The second one is so different with the gorgeous flowers in the bottom of the cup, and how wonderful to find the teacup and saucer to match your plate. Great find. Hugs, Marty

Congrats on your win! I love the blue in the second one. I gift my granddaughter w/ a tea cup on every birthday (when she turns 13 she'll get a teapot) ...the blue in that one reminds me of the one I gave her this past birthday. Hey...she's 3 & has 3 tea cups so far..I should turn it into a 3 or more post!

The Norwegian said...

Lovely tea cups! Your post inspired me to browse through all your tea cup posts and "get acquainted" with them. The stories are charming - the images like a scrapbook of "who's who" in the world of tea cups.
